Software & Accessories / Looking for Lens & Camera hood Eos 7D
« on: July 26, 2013, 04:10:17 AM »
I am looking for an soft case where my 7D + grip and an wideangle lens fits inside to carry in an normal backpack.
Should be not to big as I do not have much room for it, maybe a case out of neopren or something like that.


Can someone give me some advice?

Flashholder: (I use it for more then 10 years now, originally with the  old Novoflex flash system)

microadjustment-focusing-slider for MPE-65 (great lens! but difficult to use without tripod and slider

Lens for macro: Canon 2.8 100L IS is very good. Cheaper (without IS) and still very good IQ: Sigma EX 70mm DG 2.8 (500€)
My wife has the Tamron 90mm SP DI VC Macro 2.8 that is a little bit more expensive and in my opinion the AF is not as fast as the Canon 100L IS

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Dpreview tested the 100D

Tried the 100D in the shop as an alternatieve body for hiking. But I was not satisfied by the IQ. I was disappointed about Digic 5 (I thought the IQ will be better than the IQ of my old 60D and 7D...

Dpreview tested it.

Would be interresting which lenses meet this resolution at an high image quality.
In Spring I visited an collegue, who works for an big optical glass producing company in Germany and I was able to look at some - non confidental - production processes.
He is specialized in the production of special glass for astronomical lenses. Maybe for some military products too...
He told me that it would only make sense, if they use more highend glass for highly priced lenses to minimize CA and other optical problems. But then one lens would cost 2-5 times the price of an existing lens.

This could be an crux too. If this is neccessary, the expensive lenses will get astronomically high priced and the normal enthusiast will be only able to buy mid-ranged lenses (where Canon will not put all its efforts in developing an extraordinary IQ in an mid ranged lens)

+1 on Canon  Rumors comment.....
Highly overpriced....

The second question should be: Which lens is able to meet this resolution and highlight the theoretical image quality?

2015-16 maybe. Not 2014 unless its some "leak" to keep people from upgrading to a Nikon

Possible, indeed! Maybe there is an special GPS and WIFI sensor inside who sends all the pics compressed to the US NSA....  8)

Guess: 12000€ body only

And some new lenses made out of high-resolution glass to meet the Cams resolution.
24-70 2.8 III, 70-200 2.8 IV (doule the price...)

Technical Support / Re: Canon 5D3 at airshow
« on: July 17, 2013, 04:48:45 AM »

My tip:
1/1000-1/1250 for fast passing planes (see  vapor on high G´s). 1/800-1/1000 for slower flying planes. aperture: +1/3 to +1, spot metering. Iso Auto, high speed.
100-400 mm IS is good for fast single planes (or some lens that is better then that. Or 70-200 2.8 with 1.4x.
For flying teams an second body with an lens between 50-200mm to get them when they pass by.

You have to try it out....

@ Marsu42

I "polled" 1400 €.....
Today, my favourite shop in Munich sent me an "special" pre-offer: 1399.- 70D body only.....
 :o

I guess, he will not sell many 70D´s @ this price-----

That's why a 7d Mk II is in the near future as well.

Or maybe this IS the replacement for both the 7D and the 60D.

As an "lower half" replacemepent, maybe. But there will be an highend crop Camera, something that places the 7DII in the (semi)professional segment.
In my opinion, the 7DII will be the answer to the D400, or the missing link between the 1D crop series and the 7D.

I have a problem with my Canon 100-400 as it needs much power to change the focal length. The push/pull mechanism was repaired last year, but ist ist difficult to change the focal length if you photograph passing and fast moving objects.

As Canon will not release the rotating zoom in the near future, I want to ask, if the Sigma 50-500mm F4,5-6,3 DG OS HSM  would be an good alternative?
It is an rotoating zoom with an IS too.
Does anybody own this lens? What is your experience of this lens?


Much thanks

By the way: When I was on the F1 race in Monaco some weeks ago, I saw an photographer with the 200-400 4.0, using an unknown camera, as old fashioned as these pictures, without an extra eye-finder.  A quadratic camera with no esthetic forms. Like self-built. But it was definitively not self built.
I wonder, if another company uses the Canon mount? But wich one?

IT probably was a video camera of some kind, there are a few that do use the canon mounts even if it is via an adapter,  like the black magic that would fit your quadratic no esthetic form that you saw.

As for the camera strap in question, my hunch is that it is a rip off 3D logo-ed strap that you could probably buy in some camera store in shanghai.

black magic.....Indeed. Looks similar..... ok. I see.... no Alien ...... :'(

Funny. I bought a "1DV" labled strap for my Camera some years ago. When I was shooting at the soccer WCS some persons looked very interrested at ma Cam ;-)
Just take a Mamiya 7 II .....

Got this link in the mail today - you know this already but just in case http://www.manfrotto.us/befree?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=june

Looks interesting.  Where are you going in Africa?  When photographing from vehicles, seldom needed a tripod, bean bags work great.

Thanks for the advice!
Going to Tansania, hiking on the Kibo.
